Grymn Flier - DIY

2 posts  in one day! Welcome to new followers David Drage and MacVurrich - dont get used to multiple posts in one day - i'll never keep it up - but have fun anyway!

I've been meaning to do this for about a year and today i finally got round to it.

I'm hoping for the release of fliers and grav bikes from Hasslefree miniatures and fenris games, and I believe there is more planned from Old Crow too! But in the eantime I decided to make a DIY version.

This is my simple view of a single seat strike craft, small, maneuverable, agile and mobil enough to be operated from a forward mechanised unit and a temporary airfield.


EDIT: sorry the pictures are a bit grainy these are from my phone. Will post more when I get a chance.

Its not finished! It needs landing gear, plenty of small finishing details and some weapons. I was thinking wingtip mounted air to air missiles with 2-4 air to ground missiles side mounted/underslung. I don't think such a craft would have an underslung remote cannon but some small fixed forward machine guns would enable good infantry strafing opportunities.

This was pretty simple, and consisted of amalgamating a parts from a couple of Revel easy snap fit Sar Wars kits. I have enough to make another pair of these. Will finish all three before deciding on a paint scheme.

  2. That looks pretty cool but I am not a fan of the tailplane. It looks too large to me. If it was more akin to smaller versions of the main planes, then I think it would look better. A tail fin would add stability too.

    Apart from that, I think it is a great job on amalgamating the kits :).

    Now get them all built, sort out the weapons and landing-gear and get some pix up!
